It's July, which means Stampede season is just around the corner.
To add to the excitement, Startup Calgary, Venture Alberta and Podium Ventures have come together to bring you the first ever Startup Pitch Rodeo on Wednesday, July 11.
Eight of the hottest startups from Calgary will pitch to a panel of prestigious judges, win over curious investors and entertain over 150 guests.
In true Stampede style, each startup will have 80 seconds to twist, turn, buck and pitch, proving why their deal is worthy of the trophy.
Instead of the championship belt buckles, the top three startups will receive their choice of these three great prizes.
- Two tickets to Canada House at SXSW 2013 to pitch internationally
- Opportunity to pitch your startup in front of Venture Alberta to get funding
- Visual business model session with Business Instincts Group to hone your business plan
The first 151 guests through the door will receive an official Pitch Rodeo 2012 belt buckle. The event happens at WEST Restaurant and Bar in Calgary at 3:30pm. It's free, so RSVP now.
